My Bandit has ben off the road for about 16 months after I ruptured my Achilles' tendon last year. Want to get back on the road again but it isn't running very well. Probably due to fuel going off I should think- I only did 280 miles since last MOT. What would you suggest? Drain the tank, clean the carbs? It had a new coil fitted at the last MOT but it doesn't seem to be firing very well. I can get it started but the engine races then dies, races and dies constantly, even after it has warmed up. Any advice gratefully received, I bought a Haynes manual and happy to have a go at anything easy.
